Abstract English

The essay presents the brief history of the last technological development of the steam age on US railroad tracks: the T1 duplex class of the Pennsylvania Railroad, 1942–1951. Referring to the methods of today’s technological assessment, the article is questioning a teleological interpretation of the last US passenger tratin steam locomotive as a failing innovation.

Keywords

History of transport, 20th century railroad history, PRR T1 duplex class, Historical assessment of technology, Failing innovation, Historical analysis of technology acceptance.
